“There is a weird parallel that’s going on that goes back to 1988 in the history of Myanmar and its struggle to have democracy.”

This week on Dr. Tim Horner’s Global Smackdown he looks at the military coup in Myanmar and the growing protests. Horner looks at the similarities and differences between this coup and the military coup in 1988 that resulted in thousands of civilian deaths. Finally, he concludes by discussing international responses thus far and what to watch for moving forward.

The whole Global Smackdown for Monday, Feb. 22, is available via Zoom here.
